10 black boots, stepped up
By Elizabeth Odey, 26 March 2017
1. Hey, studs
Hot for hardware? Double up on the details with these triple buckle studded booties.
2. Wild west
What happens when you cross cowboy boots with classic black ankle booties? These beauts, that’s what.
3. Doctor's orders
If there's any brand that knows how to nail an industrial boot, it’s Dr Martens. Soften the look with frilled ankle socks, or hit it hard with fishnet tights.
If we were riding a motorcycle through Paris, we’d definitely wear these. The eyelet lace-up feature is très chic.
5. Flat out
Let’s all take a minute to thank RiRi for bringing the creeper back into our lives. The leather high-top upper = major shoe success.
6. Buckle up
This season is all about the buckle – and the bigger the better. This style gives a nod to the trend, while keeping a feminine flavour.
7. Sole mates
A chunky sole, high top and buckle fastening? These boots must mean business. Let the puddle stomping commence.
8. Slip in
So you’re a no-fuss kinda girl? Ditch the heel and forget the laces. A sturdy pair of patent Docs should do the trick.
9. Beaded booties
First came the patchwork jacket, then came the patchwork jean. Now the trend has made its way down to your shoes – get involved.
10. Embrace the lace
Shoelaces are a seriously underrated accessory. This is the season to take back the trend, and add some badass to your boots.
